The exhibition Ghost Light
will bring personal histories and race front and center through this live performances. Pinder will document the performances with video and audio recordings for inclusion in the Ghost Light
Reminiscent of the popular talk show sets of the Mike Douglas and Dick Cavett shows of the 1960s and 70s, Pinder has created an installation to serve as a launch pad for renewed conversation about a raucous race riot that took place at Rock Island High School in the early 70s. Local artist and community activist Gaye Burnett along with local actress Pamela Couch will spearhead narratives about events surrounding this infamous riot that sent many students to the hospital and some to jail.
